Families deserve childbirth classes that are:
- Based on evidence and best practice
- Prepare them for birth and early parenting with confidence
- Impart information so that it is easy to recall weeks or months later, when they need it
- Offer resources for ongoing learning
- Create community
- Enjoyable to take and FUN to teach
Childbirth Education Project firmly believes the same standards hold true for our childbirth educator workshops and every Lamaze-approved workshop is designed with these goals in mind.
Co-directors have more than 50 combined years of experience teaching childbirth classes, attending births, and training perinatal professionals. They are committed to your success and provide resources, encouragement, and community that support you every step of the way, from when you initially register, to well into the future as you celebrate your successful career as a childbirth educator.
Our workshops, whether in person or live on Zoom, help you acquire the skills to offer amazing classes, both virtually and in person through hospital programs, as an independent educator or part of a team. Every workshop celebrates diversity and what you bring to the table and focuses on best practices for adult learners. We support you as you gain confidence, prepare for the certification exam and teach families in your community. We celebrate your victories and encourage you to stretch yourself to be the type of educator that families deserve.
From memorable learning activities to a comprehensive workbook, to extensive resources and support, we have your back as you prepare to become a successful childbirth educator alongside other people who share the same goal. Our ongoing support continues after the workshop ends with community and learning opportunities available for our alum.
You have a lot of choices when it comes to taking a childbirth education training. Perhaps you feel in love with the 6 Healthy Birth Practices and the evidence-based information that Lamaze International prides itself on basing all of its educational practices. Maybe you found CEP because of the dynamic teaching of Sharon or Robin and wanted to learn from them. It could simply be that our classes worked with your budget and your schedule. That’s okay too.
Whatever reason you found us, we are thrilled that you are here!
We promise you that you’ll find these classes to be very engaging and informative around teaching and running your Lamaze Childbirth Classes! You will leave having witnessed how to run a class that is interactive and educational – certainly not a snoozefest! You will even have tried many of these yourself in class and know how to incorporate them into your classes so that they are just as vibrant!
You will not leave with an idea or two – you’ll leave with many more and some life-long friends!
